MT+ NYC Collaborative All Artists Retreat

  • North Yellowstone Lodge 1083 U.S. 89 Gardiner, MT, 59030 United States (map)

About Our Retreat:

This retreat is part of MT+NYC Collaborative’s Retreat Series. Each day begins with an optional yoga practice specifically sequenced to invite creative expression and quiet the chatter of the mind.  This is followed by nutritious seasonal breakfasts prepared by our chef Matt Brill formerly of New York's Esme, a delicious eatery in Brooklyn.  We then enter 3 hours of silence in all common areas of the property.  Perhaps one day you choose to work on the large deck, contemplating views of Dome Mountain or the Yellowstone River; another day, you wander over and write in the apple orchard, or in the privacy of your room.  We break the silence for a lunch hour, and then enter a few more hours of focused work.  


For those who are ready for adventure, we offer optional daily excursions (guided hikes, touring Yellowstone, hot springs soaks, a swim our on site swimming hole, before dinner.  Each night after dinner there's the option to share your work if you feel inclined, or just sit by the campfire listening to some good mountain music.
